    A 9-year-old California boy has saved the life of a toddler found unconscious at the bottom of a San Jose apartment complex swimming pool.

    The San Jose Mercury News reports Ishaan Singh dove into the Keily Park Luxury Apartments pool on Monday and pulled the 3-year-old girl from the bottom. She was revived a short time later.

    "He was very cute, very humble and just said, 'I saved her life, and I would do it again,'" fire Capt. Mary Gutierrez told the newspaper after talking to Ishaan and his mother."He said the little girl was really, really heavy."

    The girl had earlier been riding on the shoulders of her grandfather, who was also unconscious at the bottom of the pool. A woman dove in and brought him to the surface. He's hospitalized in serious condition.

    Five days earlier at another San Jose apartment pool, neighbors saved a girl and her father from drowning.
